This song is so wonderfully simple and beautiful...my favorite kind of music, hence the love for Elliott Smith. I only heard of Alex Chilton once or twice before, NPR did a small story because he passed away last week and then they played the above song. He sounded like a great and true musician. I instantly forgot the song but because Peter is basically a human music encyclopedia I was able to with just a few descriptions (the guy who just died, sounds sort of like With Stripes quiet song about friends (it doesn't at all), something about school) he was able to find the song and play it for me non-stop. So thanks to Peter I'll be listening to this song all week and you can too. So, so pretty.
